One part was known as Kharonde Dependency (from Junagarh to Asurgarh, Narla) and another was Mudunpoor Kharonde6 (Madanpur Kharonda from Narla to river Tel in the North of Kalahandi). Madanpur-Kharonda was independent in nature, the land of temples, forts and rivers. The rivers were highway by that time for trade and communication7. As per Global Positioning System (GPS) Madanpur-Rampur is situated at the altitude of 1136 ft from the sea level to the North-0190.45.942, East-0830.10.002.
